De Blasio: Of Course Trump’s a Racist
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called Donald Trump a racist on Saturday.
I didn’t realize this was in question. Behaves like a racist, speaks like a racist…of course @RealDonaldTrump is a racist.

The Hill reports:
Democrats have been outspoken in their condemnation of Trump’s rhetoric when it comes to race, but de Blasio may be the only major figure in the party to be so blunt in his criticism.
The New York mayor is a Hillary Clinton backer and stumped for her in Iowa ahead of the state’s primary.
Clinton was asked in a recent debate if she thought Trump is a racist. She responded by condemning his rhetoric as “offensive” but declined to give a definitive answer. Bernie Sanders likewide skirted the question.
